Linger Longer in Laos

A destination of breathtaking, unspoilt scenery, Laos sees fewer travellers than her more famous neighbours, but here you’ll find
the heart of Indochina.

Though a landlocked and mountainous country, the Mekong River runs through nearly 1,900 kilometres of this Buddhist nation’s territory and is a vital part of daily life.

Simplicity and a relaxed sense of grace – this is the beauty of Laos and the best way to discover it is through remote retreats and specialised itineraries taking you to the heart of the country.

Hidden in the small village of Muang La by Nam Pak River, Muang La Lodge features five wooden villas and nine traditionally designed guestrooms all exuding a sense of tranquillity. Along with mountain views and a natural hot spring, one can enjoy a sauna, spa and explore northern Laos’ local ethnic groups either by foot, mountain bike or 4WD cars.

Take a leisurely 3-day journey down the Mekong River to one of the region’s most remarkable treasures, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Vat Phou, considered the birthplace of Khmer architecture. With 12 newly renovated cabins, the river-borne hotel takes you through the 4,000 Islands and Southeast Asia’s largest waterfalls at Pha Pheng.
